Space Problem While Burning Dvd

Question

I've finally got to the point of burning my forst 2011 DVD! However, when I pressed the BURN button i got the following error..."Not enough hard-disk space for temporary files" Bummer! Evidently 2011 uses the C drive for temporary files in the burning process. Unfortunately my C drive is almost full. I've moved everyting I can but with no luck. When we installed 2011 we had to put it on the D drive because the C was so full. Roxio Tech Suport helped me with this. Any ideas on how I can proceed or do I need to call tech support?

Thx/John in Chicago

It is time to get a new drive. If you are that squeezed with free hard drive space then you will always have problems.

 

How big is your C drive? Try changing your C2011 temp directory to the D drive using Tools/Options

 

Another option is to burn to an iso file on the D drive.

Thanks for the advise. I'd like to try the ISO option. Where/how do i save the file as an ISO file? Do I do it from within Videowave? I looked in the 'save as' option in videowave and there dosen't seem to be an ISO option.

the burn to iso (image) option is found in myDVD (Create DVDs from main menu) on the Burn window page.

Uncheck the burn to disc and check the Create Image box. Make a not where the iso file is created. Later use the Burn Image option to burn the iso file to the DVD.

Thanks for the help but please forgive me, I'm having difficulty following your directions. Old age proably! here's what I'm doing:

1. From the HOME page I'm clicking on the "Create DVDs" icon. The one with the movie frame on top of the disk.

2. This bring up the "MY DVD" page. At this point I get lost. I cant find any page with a BURN option. Where am I going wrong?

Thx for your patience

Thanks for the individual screen shots. Sometime a picture is worth a thousand words. I think my problem in in screen shot 2. When I get this screen I click on 'Existing project" but when the system displays the contents of my "My Videos" folder my project isn't there. My project was saved as a DMSM file. Does this make a difference?

Thanks again for your patience.

myDVD is looking for a myDVD project which will have the extension dmsd. You obviously have not yet created a myDVD project or did not save it in the the directory where myDVD is looking.

 

A dmsm project is not a myDVD project but a Videowave project.

 

To add the dmsm project in myDVD, you have to start a new myDVD project and then Add the dmsm project. file.
